Make a New Year’s Resolution to Shop More Thrift
We have the perfect New Year’s resolution for you – and we guarantee it’s super easy to keep: Shop at Volunteers of America Ohio & Indiana thrift stores. Trust us when we tell you that even Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, Greta Thunberg will love this resolution and here’s why:
Shopping Thrift Means Shopping Green
Rubber, leather, and textiles make up more than nine percent of municipal solid waste in the U.S. according to EPA estimates. That means the average American throws away about 81 pounds of clothing every year.
By shopping and donating at VOA thrift stores, you are saving clothes from sitting in a landfill. You are also offsetting the energy it takes to create, ship and sell new clothing. Stay green. Shop thrift.
Thrift Shopping Helps You Stay on Budget
It’s no secret that you can find name brands, like-new, with-tags items at our VOA thrift stores. Check out these thrifters who put together great outfits without breaking the bank.
